The show features characters from the X-Men universe, including Magneto, Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, and others, as they battle against various villains and threats that threaten the world. The series was produced by Japanese animation studio Madhouse and premiered on G4 in April 2011.

The show's plot follows the X-Men as they travel to Japan to investigate the disappearance of one of their members, Jean Grey. They encounter a new threat in the form of the U-Men, a group of humans who have enhanced themselves with animal DNA to gain superhuman powers. The X-Men must stop the U-Men and uncover the mystery behind Jean Grey's disappearance.

One of the unique aspects of the X-Men Anime Series is the incorporation of Japanese culture and mythology into the show.

Additionally, the show features references to Japanese mythology, such as the use of the phoenix as a symbol for Jean Grey's transformation.

The animation of the X-Men Anime Series is visually impressive, with vibrant colors and dynamic action sequences. The character designs are faithful to their comic book counterparts but also incorporate a distinct anime style. The voice acting for the English dub of the show is well done, with familiar voice actors such as Steve Blum and Fred Tatasciore lending their talents to the X-Men and their adversaries.

As the series progresses, the X-Men face new challenges and threats, including the return of Jean Grey as the powerful Phoenix. The show also introduces new mutants such as Armor, a young Japanese girl who can create a protective shield over her body.

One of the standout episodes of the series is "Code of Conduct," which features Wolverine traveling to Canada to confront his past and his connection to the Weapon X program. The episode delves into Wolverine's backstory and provides insight into his motivations and struggles.

Overall, the X-Men Anime Series from G4 is a well-executed animated adaptation of the X-Men comics. The incorporation of Japanese culture and mythology adds an interesting twist to the franchise, and the animation and voice acting are top-notch. Fans of the X-Men comics will appreciate the faithful adaptation of their favorite characters, while newcomers will enjoy the action and adventure of the show.
